Transfer Students

Featured Scholarships for Transfer Students

Incoming transfer students whose residence is classified as out-of-state may apply for the Campus Atlanta Scholarship, which reduces tuition from out-of-state to in-state rates. Students are still required to pay in-state tuition. Please check the Campus Atlanta Scholarship description for current minimum academic requirements. The Office of Admissions will contact incoming transfer students that are eligible for a limited number of merit-based awards.
